look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours gold with a small head.
Nose shows grassy and spicy hops, skunky notes, grainy malt and lemon.
Very similar flavours and quite clean, but with sweet bready malt prominent amongst more spicy hops. Somewhat plain, could use more bitterness.
Needs more carbonation.

This pours clear and bright golden with a fluffy white head that disappears quickly.

That macro lager maltiness positively throws itself out of the bottle as soon as it's cracked. Aromas of sweet corn. Awful.

Very similar on the palate. Sweet, grainy, yuk

Thin and watery

This is about as awful as I expected it would be.
